Pune: A confident Sunrisers Hyderabad, on a two-match winning run, will face a rejuvenated Rising Pune Supergiant in an Indian Premier League (IPL) match at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium on Saturday.
Earlier this week, Hyderabad defeated Kings XI Punjab and Delhi Daredevils at home and now they play their third away match. They had lost their earlier two away matches.
And come Saturday, they will be keen to win the Pune clash so that they can take the confidence to their coming away games at Bengaluru and Mohali.
Australian Steven Smith-led Pune, who defeated Royal Challengers Bangalore in their last match to end a three-match losing streak on Sunday, will be fresh and raring to go after a five-day break. Pune team, which has won two matches from five games, must have utilised the five-day break as a period to recharge their batteries and retrospect themselves with the middle campaign of the IPL about to reach.
To overcome a strong team like Hyderabad, Pune will have to put up a strong show with both the bat and the ball. Pune will be expecting Smith, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Ajinkya Rahane, Manoj Tiwary and Ben Stokes to fire in order to post a good total.
